I have been doing pretty good, although with the 1 year anniversary of Rowan's death coming up I have had a lot on my mind... I've decided to actually come up with some New Year's Goals this year (I never usually do) to help me through some stress I've been dealing with lately. I think it should help. When Rowan passed away, I was always open to the idea of going to therapy if I felt like I truly needed it. But for me, the best therapy I can give myself is writing. When I was a kid/adolescent, I filled up 5 journals. It has really helped me throughout my life. I'm going to continue to post on our blog as well as in my journal (which is one of my goals).
Well, I guess I'll catch everyone up with our recent going-on's. I never got around to posting the pictures from our Thanksgiving (I know that's forever ago...). Anyway, we had 20 people over to our 2 bedroom apartment. It was so much fun!! My brother and his now fiance, Emily, and her two boys, Mason and Milo, even came from New York and stayed with us. After Thanksgiving, we even had a lobster dinner with them. We're so excited for them to join our family!
During the first week of December, Dennen's mom came out and flew back to Utah with Finn and me. Dennen wasn't able to come until his final's were over on the 22nd. Dennen's mom works for JetBlue, so it was a better deal for us to go with her. Thanks Gundi!
It sure was nice to see both of our families over the holidays. We were able to see some of our long-time Utah friends as well. Finn had an overabundance of people and cousins to play with. And Dennen and I were able to go skiing at Alta. It was a good time!
